Though the market has gotten weaker in some areas...properties closest to the ocean are still moving...Summer of 2007 even exceeded that of 2006...Buyers are still looking and know that this is the time to be buying before the market bounces back to the sellers court. It is now fall 2007 and calls are still coming in which leads me to believe that 2008 should be even better.

Though the market has dropped drastically in other states, Maine is holding its own and sales have increased since 2006. This is a very good sign for Southern Maine Real Estate. It appears that buyers are trying to lock in to their second homes or investment properties while the market is still in their favor.
